Protect Yourself and Report the Latest Frauds, Scams, Spams, Fakes, Identify Theft Hacks and Hoaxes
Have you received an email from "Ms. Vera Bells of Federal Express (FEDEX)", claiming
"in respect of your ATM INTERSWITCH CARD that Mrs. Nona Ugboma brought to this company to be delivered to you and before the protocol commenced, we had a dispute with the (NICON INSURANCE) office about your insurance certificate, although this have been settled. However, we are happy to inform you that your ATM INTERSWITCH CARD and is valued at USD400,000,00 Dollars, ..."
and Nigeria owes you money from a "contract/inheritance payment file", whatever that may be, and he will send you the money on an ATM card, if you contact "PHILIP EKPO"? "Ms. Vera Bells of Federal Express (FEDEX)" can't even spell "truly", is writing to you from a free Yahoo account, wants you to reply to another free Yahoo account in France and apparently can't spell and feels the odd need to randomly capitalize some WORDS (like that). Add to that the fact that you have never heard of anyone being paid for anything by "ATM card" and this should immediately strike you as a scam. Allow us to point out the inconsistencies and how the scam works.
It's a mystery why Ms. Vera Bells of Federal Express (FEDEX) named you as a beneficiary or what the "contract" is, but you better reply pretty quickly or risk losing millions from the "contract/inheritance payment file". Also notice that the "lawyer" or official is writing to you from a free email account (Yahoo, Hotmail, etc.); in fact, they typically use more than one different free email accounts.
